Drought Tolerance

Once established, frangipanis can survive flood waters and monsoons but generally speaking, they like hot dry conditions. When gardens are neglected in busy times and during drought frangipanis are especially appreciated when they not only survive but continue to thrive. Many people in Australia have become familiar with frangipanis while growing up with them in the yard or during a honeymoon in the tropics and having a frangipani tree in their own back yard has since become a dream.
